Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Infections due to foodborne pathogens continue to be a major source of disease worldwide, especially in developing countries where these infections are a significant cause of morbidity and mortality. Foodborne diseases can be caused by a number of viral, bacterial, and eukaryotic pathogens.

In this Special Issue, we invite submissions from the many disciplines that cover this broad field. These can include original research spanning the “farm-to-fork” aspect of food safety. Of particular interest is: emerging foodborne pathogens, emergence of drug resistance in pathogens, microbial pathogenesis, and use of novel technologies to detect, identify or classify foodborne pathogens.

We look forward to your contribution.

Dr. Aaron Lynne
Guest Editor
